First Trip to Okemo this Sunday

“I can’t wait for Sunday,” said Corbin Kuntze, a junior on the Boston University Snowboard team. “We’re finally going snowboarding!”

Sunday’s trip is to Okemo Mountain in Vermont. Check out Okemo’s official snow report and snowmaking blog!

BUST members will wake-up bright and early, (around 5 a.m.), jump on a bus, and head to Okemo for a day of snowboarding.

Here’s some alumni tips from former BUST President Alexa Fernandez to help ensure a shred-tastic day at Okemo.

      Tip #1: Set multiple alarms. The bus leaves each spot at 5:15, 5:30, and 5:45 a.m., respectively.

      Tip #2: Pack gear the night before. It may be hard to remember to bring gloves, hats, socks, hand warmers,     sweatshirts, scarves, boots, boards, tools, and snacks at 5 a.m.

      Tip #3: Sleep on the bus. The ride provides an extra three hours of snooze time.

      Tip #4: There’s a Waffle hut, so bring cash if you find it hard to resist that warm, sugary aroma.

      Tip #5: Have fun snowboarding with BUST friends!

Fernandez also said her favorite song to listen to while snowboarding is ‘Punching in a Dream” by naked and Famous.
